Golden Corridor Partnership recognized as 'Bright Idea'
The Ash Center for Democratic Governance and Innovation at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University has recognized the efforts of the Golden Corridor Advanced Manufacturing Partnership (GCAMP) as part of the 2015 Bright Ideas program.
Formed in 2009, GCAMP is a grass roots group of manufacturers along Illinois' Interstate 90 tollway corridor, neighboring municipalities, school districts and colleges that have worked together to increase student interest in the manufacturing industry, promote area growth and sustain skilled manufacturing jobs.
"Education is changing," GCAMP President Gary Skoog said. "This change requires better collaboration between private industry and government to teach skills that the marketplace demands."
